The Schizophonics are, in one word, EXPLOSIVE. Their frenzied live performances tap into the same unstoppable combination of rock ‘n’ roll energy and showmanship that fueled the MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom. When they hit the stage, they grab your attention and don’t let go. They’ve built up a formidable reputation in their home base of San Diego and a fervent following among locals. “One of my favorite live bands ever!” proclaims Tim Mays, who has run the Casbah for over 25 years and seen literally thousands of live bands come through his doors in that time. “The Schizophonics bring the goods every time they play,” he enthuses. “Pat Beers is like a cross between Jimi Hendrix and James Brown – yelping, wailing, shralping the guitar with his left hand while gyrating all over the place; Kyle joins in the mayhem on bass and Lety keeps it real behind the kit.”

But the Schizophonics are more than just an outstanding live act, they’re also committed to writing great, memorable songs, a skill singer/guitarist Pat Beers has continued to hone, channeling such influences as Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Sonics, the Stooges, the MC5, James Brown, and Little Richard.

Pat and drummer Lety Beers first met in Casa Grande, Arizona, before pulling up stakes and moving to San Diego in 2008. They formed the Schizophonics the following year, and have worked tirelessly since then, playing literally hundreds of live shows up and down the West Coast, and further afield. A 2013 tour of Spain with El Vez – who had recruited them as his backing group – resulted in the group’s first record release, a three-song 7” EP on the Munster label. In December 2014 they took their act to an arena-sized venue for 91X’s Wrex the Halls concert, on a bill that also included Billy Idol, Spoon, Cage the Elephant, and Interpol. Afterwards 91X program director Mike Halloran declared them, “The most exciting band I have seen in many, many years. They must be seen to be believed.”

In July 2015 the Schizophonics’ second single, “Put Your Weight On It” b/w “Red Planet,” was released on the Ugly Things label. This summer they started work on their debut album at Earthling Studios with producer Mike Kamoo. Their future plans also include a European tour in September and October, this time taking in Spain, Italy, France and England.

«The 99 Degree are a truly original mutant surf band from a city that was famously quoted as having everything except a beach» — The Punk Site

«Boot Hill Surf Club would be worth buying for the guitar introductions on the first three tracks alone. Add in the crazy danceable rhythms and pure, sexy Mexicana of some of the tracks and you have a great addition to the genre and a new twist to a retro style of music» — Louder Than War

«Boot Hill Surf Club is the work of a group who plough their own furrow. It would be easy to knock out an EP of straight-up garage punk for these guys but that isn't their style. They play with formats and styles, fitting the subject matter to a particular approach, and by god, does it work. There is humour, drama and spittle in this EP and I, for one, wanna hear more!» — Dayz Of Purple And Orange

«The Northern Quarter’s best kept secret are local lads The 99 Degree. They break out into psych-enthused spaghetti western surf rock; ‘Dead or Alive' a fantastic track all round with its moody guitar riff, drawled vocals and throbbing rhythm section – the crowd lap it up. Another key track which channels the likes of the Allah-Lahs and will always turn heads comes in ‘Bed of Bones’. Definitely one to watch these guys, the possibilities are intriguing.» — Silent Radio


3 lads from Doncaster making some loud noise. We're all about Blues, Grunge, Acid, soul, pop, Acid, and all things weird. Starting and always belonging in Doncaster, we are now based in Manchester always writing new material and always playing. We wont stop until people stop worrying about the next most terrible thing that hasn't even happened yet. Times are hard, everything is changing and still at the end of all the worrying we're all going to die. So, lets enjoy ourselves whilst we still can. With loud music, piss stained T shirts, pre drinks, romance, hangovers, comedowns, bad mates, bad breath and lots and lots of love.

Ever wondered what the sun looks like upside down? Or why you turn on your telly every morning to gobble down on some more terrible news?
